An Evaluation of the Head Start Bilingual Bicultural Curriculum Development Project. Final Report.
Chesterfield, Ray; And Others
This document synthesizes the results of a 3-1/2-year evaluation of four different Head Start bilingual bicultural curriculum models implemented in eight Head Start centers serving Hispanic communities. The report provides the findings of the program's impact as reflected in pre- and posttesting of children, interviews with parents and Head Start teaching staff, and systematic classroom observations obtained over the course of the 1979-1980 Head Start year. In addition, the report provides a summary of the field procedures and analytic methods that were required for this multi-method evaluation, and presents the conclusions and implications drawn from the study's findings.
